TNP managing director Jeff Page says the TNP Home Loans initiative was launched in early January and already it has been approached by many mortgage brokers looking to get information about the benefits.
Van Der Merwe will help mortgage brokers grow their practices and he will work with them around cross marketing opportunities with insurance.
He has been in the financial services industry since 1994 working with mortgage brokers, financial planners and risk insurance advisers.
Van Der Merwe says he is excited about the opportunity with TNP.
"I was intrigued by TNP's comprehensive offering, along with the diversity of being able to work with advisers in the risk, wealth management and home loan space," he says.
